    Week 12 FAIL: Chargers passing game goes AWOL 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week features an entire passing offense that I never expected to see here. Philip Rivers and the Chargers somehow managed to put up little-to-no stats in a game in which they thoroughly dominated the Indianapolis Colts. I guess when you’re running all over the opposing team and Peyton Manning is throwing pick-six’s, there is little need to risk it by throwing a lot.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…

      Man my fail list is sooooo LONG!
      DeSean Butter Fingers Jackson
      Steve Butter Fingers Johnson
      Chris WTF Johnson
      Mark C’mon Man Sanchez

      Me for not playing BJGE like I wanted to, but instead listened to all the pundits advice. Now I most likely will not make the playoffs. That might be a good thing, take me out of my misery.

      Don’t forget Qakland’s Darrin McFadden. Last 2 games were worthless. Against SD this week it will probably be the same.

      • Brandon 6:34 am on December 1, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        The only reason McFadden didn’t make the list is due to his solid day in the receiving game. I have him in a league where we get 0.5 points per reception, so his seven catches for 63 yards weren’t completely horrible. However, his rushing the past couple games have been absolutely atrocious.

        Funny, in a league with a flex spot, I have Chris Johnson, Ray Rice and Darren McFadden. I thought I was pretty much guaranteed a spot in the championship, but all three have been playing way below expectations. 🙁

      I can send you the list for my team if you want me to start the Week 13 FAIL post for you… Thanks Orton!!
      I still have hope though. Just need Welker to have 100+ yards and a couple of TD’s and I will get the win and bragging rights.

      • Brandon 11:05 am on December 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, I’m putting the blame on Orton for costing me $100. If he had scored some decent points, I had a chance to win the regular season 1st place prize!

    Week 11 FAIL: Randy Moss to the bench 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week was the final straw for Randy Moss, in terms of me starting him for one of my teams. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, with the team playing one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL…and how does he reward me? Another goose egg. He’s on the bench until he shows something/anything.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

      Nearly my entire starting lineup. Frank Gore, Jahvid Best, Randy Moss, Zach Miller. Gore was consensus #1 this week by everyone’s start lists. 12 rushes for 23 yards. Suffice to say I lost badly this week.

      • Brandon 1:21 pm on November 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I only had him at #2! 🙂

        But yeah, he (and the rest of the 49ers) seriously disappointed. Randy Moss was a complete disaster though.

      Bench?? I cut him, which is what the Titans will do in another few weeks…..

      My team did great, my week 11 fail that cost me a win was playing Mike Thomas instead of Steve Johnson. I have to find a way to forgive myself today. It was a dumb last minute move.

      • Brandon 4:49 pm on November 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        36 yards and a score from Mike Thomas aren’t too bad…unless you compare them to Steve Johnson 🙂 There was no way to predict that sort of outburst from Johnson though. 50% of the time you’ll get that decision right.

    • Hawgman 5:50 am on November 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Let’s see – I have a RB (McFadden), a TE (V. Davis) and THREE WR’s (Andre, Boldin, & Manningham) on this list. These guys wasted great efforts by Hillis and Big Ben. I lost by a very large margin!!!

      The Minnesota Vikings waived Wide Receiver Randy Moss just four games after they traded a 3rd Round Draft pick to the Patriots in order to land the veteran pass-catcher. Very shocking to learn about Moss release. Percy Harvin was injured during the Week 8 loss which means Moss would have been the teams only proven talent at WR. Fantasy Spin: Very Instead Moss will hit the NFLs Waiver Wire, but that doesnt mean he should be dropped from your Fantasy Roster just yet.

    Week 10 FAIL: Peyton Manning. 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week the list is headlined by a couple Hall of Fame quarterbacks, but because Favre has been on the list almost every week this season, we’ll focus on Mr. Peyton Manning. Not a terrible game, since his team won and he didn’t throw an interception, but just 185 yards and no touchdowns?! Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Manning put up those kind of numbers.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

      roddy’s game isn’t enough to swing a matchup.
      had AP, moss, steve johnson, witten, NYG DEF! for crying out loud, fitzpatrick, all failed. lost to the last place team, no longer in first. guess that’s fantasy football at its best for ya. Kitna and amendola on the bench.

    • steeve 3:17 pm on November 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Peyton Manning, Aaron Hernandez, Steve Johnson.. at least Sanchez threw to Keller bunch of times although he couldn’t haul it in.

    • Hawgman 4:29 pm on November 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      After the very disappointing week last weekend, I only have one player on the FAIL list – Witten. I had Felix, Orton, Cutler & Nate Washington burning holes on my bench, but I had Big Ben, Hillis, SJax, Andre, Boldin, and Carpenter in the line up and all of them were in double digits or close enough that it doesn’t matter.
      I think Vernon Davis should have been included also, but his main problems were TD’s called back due to penalty.

    Week 9 FAIL: Glad I'm not a Cowboys fan 

    Continuing with a new post for this season, here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week marks the first time in FFGeekBlog history that an entire team has headlined the FAIL post twice in the same season (okay, we just started it this year, but still…) The Dallas Cowboys are just pathetic at this point. As a fan of the Patriots, who were embarrassed by the Browns this past weekend, at least put up some decent stats at important positions. This can not be said for the Cowboys, besides Dez Bryant.

    As I mentioned last week, I’ve now included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a new worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As expected, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them…

      I should have played Danny Woodhead as RB instead of BJGE. Danny made over 10 pts on our Yahoo league. BJGE a little over 1 point.

      I didn’t see Blount on that list, he didn’t burn up the field yesterday either. I was at the game watching him in person! LOL

      • Brandon 3:15 pm on November 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Funny you mention Blount. I actually had him on the list as a borderline FAIL, but decided against it due to the fact that he at least put up some yards and expectations may have been a bit high for him considering he had exactly one good game under his belt going into this week’s games, hah.

    • TJ 3:18 pm on November 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      And Roddy White…. but good too see him come back in. Good thing I had Foster & Rodgers to pick it up!

    • Hawgman 11:25 am on November 9, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      My WR lineup for last week – Boldin, Andre, and Collie. I had Hillis in the lineup (every week start in my opinion) and he did great, but the rest of the team only had one more TD and that was from Big Ben. I lost by more than EIGHTY points!!
      Oh well, there’s always next week!

    Week 8 FAIL: Stumblin' Steelers 

    Continuing with a new post for this season, here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    Last week it was the Cowboys (and Felix Jones still represents this week!) but this week the team-wide failure is awarded to the Steelers. Pittsburgh couldn’t find a way to pass against the tough Saints defense and it hurt Roethlisberger and his receivers.

    As I mentioned last week, I’ve now included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a new worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As expected, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

      I’m new to fantasy football, this is not an excuse, just a fact.

      I need to remind myself that this is my year to learn. My goal is to stay in the top 7 of 14 team league.

      My team failed this week, here are some of the reasons why:

      I started Knowshon Moreno against my better judgment. I decided that asking for advice would be better than following my gut feel.

      I didn’t use my critical thinking skills which would have told me that BJGE and Woodhead would have a good day against the Vikings. I’m really upset about this, they burned holes in my bench.

      I didn’t expect Hinds Ward, Heath Miller and the Steelers to just suck wind against the Saints who just caught a beat down by the Browns last week!

      Steve Johnson decided to be mediocre again on the day I decided to start him.

      I followed advise of the “knowledgeable” and started Seattle’s D/ST – which netted me 2 points. I would have done better to stick with the Redskins.

      I actually knew the Titans would loose yesterday. I just always start Chris Johnson no matter what because he’s Chris Johnson. Blount out performed CJ however and burned a hole in my bench.

      I just needed to type all of my pain from week 8 out loud somewhere. I hope I can put it behind me now and move forward.

      Thank goodness I didn’t start James Jones.

        I’ll defer to user Squish on this one. See his response below…

      Brandon,

      Mike Williams was actually injured his knee (bruised) in his game so that’s his excuse. He had no catches before leaving and got the 27 yard catch after returning.

      I know you guys aren’t in the habit of adding kickers but Nick Folk deserves props this week. He netted me -1 points in my money league which penalizes for misses.

      Janet, you seem to have made all the right calls this week they just turned out bad. On paper, the Seattle defense should have destroyed OAK. It was a fluke that they didn’t. In reality, the Rams had the best matchup this week and their defense followed through as it should have. Seattle was expected to do the same. It just happened weird. Was Cleveland supposed to smoke the Saints last week? I think not. The stats are broadly predictable most of the time but not always. Just stick with good advice and you’ll end up getting the better results in the end.

      Moreno gets way too many goal-line carries to bench normally and Tebow stole his TD this week.

      What skills could have told you that the NE backfield would play well? Minnesota is generally a fairly stout run defense and NE generally has a fairly useless backfield by committee even at its best.

      I present no excuses for Heath Miller. He should be back on track with Big Ben at the helm but he isn’t. I’m as confused as you are. Ward has a good excuse in that he is old. The Steelers are also passing less this year.

      Steve Johnson had a fine day, it’s all you can expect of a waiver pick-up. Draft an elite WR if you want better results than a TD and 37 yards receiving each week. Generally if a WR gets in the endzone, he has had a good week regardless of yardage or catches. I think because of all the big performances by WRs this year that people are starting to forget they aren’t a reliable source of scoring.

      If you had started Blount over CJ you would have been a prophet of FF. Nobody could have predicted that. though CJ got into the endzone so why complain?

      Some weeks just don’t work out the way they are expected too. This week in my money league I’m going to score less than half the points my team (the league leader) normally does. I am already past it. I had bye week troubles but there was no excuse. My team had their off-week which is fine with me. I know I have a great team and this was a fluke. Let it go and you’ll be much better off.

          Well it started out just the comment to you about Folk and Williams but then the other comment appeared while I was typing the response to your list. I started addressing it and the next thing you know it was more of that than the original comment lol. Just a case of what happens when you address two posts in one I guess.

    • Hawgman 4:08 pm on November 1, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I have a sure fire way to make Big Ben put up mad numbers – All I gotta do is keep him on my bench!! I am in one of the lowest scoring contests of the year against the team I am tied with for 1st in my division. My QB puts up less than SIX POINTS!!!
      Just hope Andre can blow it up tonight. All I need is a couple TD’s and I can eek out a win…

      • Hawgman 11:22 am on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Update (as if anyone else really cares), Andre did his job, but I still lost by a frakkin HALF POINT! I blame it on the Miami D (dropping all those INTs they had in their hands) and/or Big Ben.
        Oh well, on to the next victim! He has 5 or 6 bye-bye babies, so I am hoping for the best.
